Bataan bishop calls for volunteer watchdogs for May elections
Bishop Ruperto Santos of the Diocese of Balanga on Monday called for volunteers to assist the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) for its poll duties in the May elections.
PPCRV, an election monitoring group accredited by the Commission on Elections, is a non-partisan, non-sectarian, non-profit organization of the Roman Catholic Church in the Philippines that seeks to ensure free, fair, and honest elections in the country.
“We are grateful for our PPCRV coordinators. And we are looking forward for more volunteers. God bless us all, now and always,” Santos said.
The bishop made the call after the installation of the Diocese of Balanga parish coordinators for PPCRV at the Cathedral–Shrine of Saint Joseph.
Santos urged the populace to remember the three “Ks” during the election – “Halalan is our Karapatan, Halalan is our Katungkulan, and Halalan is our Kinabukasan.”
